SJRA Centennial QSO Party

It is a rare occasion when an amateur radio club can celebrate a landmark anniversary. In this case the South Jersey Radio Association (SJRA) is preparing to celebrate its centennial anniversary and stake its claim to being one of the oldest continually meeting clubs of its kind in North America. Founded on June 12, 1916 in the home of William G. Phillips in Collingswood, NJ, the history of SJRA dates back to the very inception of radio, predating the first commercial radio broadcast by four years! The club became affiliated with the ARRL in 1920.

Plans to celebrate the SJRA Centennial include a 10-day QSO party from June 10 through 19 with various awards for participation.  Participants can use just about any mode using their QRP (< 5 watts), low power (< 150 watts) or high power < 150 watts) stations. Bonus points are awarded for logging an SJRA member station, identified by the call/100 designation, or the clubs K2AA station. Logs can be submitted in any of the standard format.
